Single-family rental prices rose 3 percent over the year in June and have risen a cumulative 4.1 percent over the first six months of this year, according to CoreLogic’s Single-Family Rent Index, released Thursday. At the national level, single-family rental price growth reached its peak in February 2016 at 4.2 percent. For the first half of this year, prices have risen an average of 2.8 percent over the year each month. The pace of increase has depended somewhat on the type of property.“High demand and low supply of lower-priced single-family rental properties continue to push up rents for this segment of the rental market,” said Molly Boesel, Principal Economist at CoreLogic. “With these market forces expected to stay in place in the near term, rents on lower-priced rental properties should continue to outpace those of higher-end properties.” On an annual basis, prices grew more for low-end single-family rentals, about 3.9 percent, compared to 2.8 percent for higher-end rentals. CoreLogic defines “low-end rentals” as those with rental prices less than 75 percent of the regional median price, whereas “high-end” rental properties are those that are more than 125 percent of the area’s median rent. Rental price growth is concentrated in metros with “limited new construction, low rental vacancies and strong local economies” as well as areas affected by major hurricanes, according to CoreLogic. The highest rate of single-family rent price growth among the 20 metros CoreLogic tracks took place in Las Vegas. Prices rose 5.4 percent per month on an average annual basis over the first half of the year. Orlando and Phoenix ranked No. 2 and No. 3 with an average of 5.2 percent and 4.7 percent annual price growth for each of the first six months of this year. While nearly all 20 of the major metros CoreLogic observed experienced price increases in each of the first six months of this year, Honolulu was the one outlier. Honolulu experienced its first single-family rental price increase in seven months in May. In June, prices rose again, increasing 1.4 percent over the year. CoreLogic also highlighted the fact that hurricane-impacted Houston “shows impressive year-over-year increases in the first half of 2018, peaking at 4.4 percent year over year in May and settling at 3.9 percent year over year in June 2018.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agocenter_img Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe About Author: Krista Franks Brock Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago August 23, 2018 2,171 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agolast_img read more

first_imgWhile working the concession stand, it’s essential to adhere to these helpful tips:Wash your hands often. This includes when you begin and end your shift, and any time you return to the stand. Hands should be washed frequently during food service. Remember that sharing towels also spreads bacteria.Clean your hands and change gloves if you handle money with your gloves on and plan to continue with food service.Keep germs out of the ice. Place the ice scooper in a secure place outside the ice machine. You wouldn’t want germs from the handle to contaminate the entire batch of ice.Ensure that all meats are cooked to the appropriate internal temperature. Grillmasters, keep in mind that beef should reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit and chicken should reach 165 F. Reaching the correct temperature is a safe way to kill bacteria and avoid illness.Keep it cold. Lettuce, fruits, vegetables and condiments should be stored in a cooler with ice or in a refrigerator at 40 F or below. While this may be a no-brainer, I can’t tell you how many times I have personally seen lemons, pico de gallo and other condiments languishing outdoors without proper cooling. Keep it hot. Some foods can be dangerous if they are not held at the appropriate temperature once they are cooked. If the food item is not kept warm, throw it out after two hours; if the temperature exceeds 90 F, that time should be reduced to one hour.Even if you only have minor symptoms of illness, don’t volunteer. Get someone to replace you.Lastly, training is essential. Volunteers are often students, parents and good-hearted members of the community. Provide food safety training prior to the big event. Football season is here, and soccer and basketball seasons are soon to follow. There will be marching and pep bands, families gathering to cheer on their favorite teams, lots of fun and my favorite part: the concession stand. Concession stands are great fundraisers. They vary widely from site to site in everything from the menu to the accommodations they offer. The safety and well-being of everyone visiting the concession stand, as well as the organization’s reputation, lies in the hands of a small, but dedicated, group of volunteers.If you are working at a concession stand this football season, use these helpful tips from University of Georgia Cooperative Extension to ensure proper food safety, and stay in the game.Remember your checklist of essential items:Dishwashing liquid can be used to clean all equipment and utensils; it can also be used to wash hands in the absence of soap.Paper towels can be used to wash and dry equipment and utensils, dry hands and clean countertops. Remember that sponges, dishcloths and brushes can spread harmful bacteria.Sanitizing solution can be used to sanitize all workspaces, including countertops and equipment. According to UGA Extension food safety specialist Judy Harrison, “Sanitizing is a step beyond clean and reduces the levels of bacteria left behind after cleaning.” A quick recipe for sanitizer is 1 tablespoon of bleach per gallon of water.Gloves, tongs and tissue paper can be used to avoid hand-to-hand contact with food items.last_img read more

first_imgHAMILTON – Stelco Holdings Inc. is trading 11 per cent higher than its opening asking price on its first day of trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Stelco priced its initial public offering at $17 a share to pull in an expected $200 million. Its stock was up $1.90 at $18.90 in morning trading on the TSX.The Hamilton-based steel company says it plans to use the money for capital investments, pension payments, and to increase its offerings in specialized steel products.It wants to grow its offerings in galvanized steel, in part to regain a foothold in the nearby auto industry where it used to have a significant presence.The company says it could also invest in co-generation to reduce its reliance on Ontario’s high electricity costs, and thereby reduce operating costs in the power-intensive industry.Stelco’s history goes back to 1910 but in recent years has been beset by financial problems. It went into creditor protection in 2004 and was sold as a subsidiary to U.S. Steel Co. in 2007, then went back into creditor protection in 2014 before being sold to Bedrock Industries L.P. in late 2016.At the end of June, Stelco emerged from creditor protection under its original name, having eliminated $3 billion of debt and about $1.4 billion of pension and other retirement obligations.last_img read more
